Our Fund 

The GK Fund was founded by Colette Phillips, Michael Benezra, and Andre Porter in December of 2019 to close the racial wealth gap by facilitating access to capital, technology and mentorship for startups and small businesses BIPOC founders. The fund is supported by a dedicated network of foundations, corporations and individuals. Through its portfolio of integrated programming and partnerships, the fund helps promising BIPOC founders build connections, secure loan capital, receive a website and connect with angel investors, family offices and venture capital firms.
